Michelle earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Pittsburgh and is a graduate of Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania with a Masters in Health Science Physician Assistant studies. She has experience working in primary care, first in rural Pennsylvania, and then in the greater Hartford area. Working in primary care, she witnessed the increase in preventable diseases that are associated with obesity and recognized the need for education regarding this disease. She was ecstatic to get the opportunity to do this with Pounds! She loves spending time with her patients in order to educate them on their diseases and answer any questions they have so they have a full understanding of their health. Michelle is thrilled to be working with patients to meet their health goals and learn healthy lifestyles.
